  • Definitely the happiest place on Earth. This is our go-to vacation spot. We haven't been lately and we all miss it. Disney is the best experience around. The staff members "cast members" pride themselves on customer service. Besides eating and riding rides, we spend a lot of time trading collectors' pins. And any cast member will trade up to 2 pins with you, so you can find great treasures. Disney is simply the gold standard for amusement parks. Nothing else even comes close.
  • I love Disney World! I've been here so many times as a kid and as an adult. I love Pleasure Island! I love to dance, love comedians, love the night life!It's a whole lot of fun! The most incredible fireworks I've ever seen at Epcot! I love animals, so of course I love Animal Kingdom, and I love taking a safari! Christmas and New Year's Eve are my favorite holidays, so naturally I enjoyed the Christmas shop! Some of the ornaments on my tree include Disney ornaments. These are examples of so much fun at Disney, and I included some of many pictures I have to share! I also enjoy watching the events on TV that take place here. I love Walt Disney, and I admire his saying: " It's fun to do the impossible." Thanks Walt Disney for this great place that I had sensational times, and for the future fabulous times to come! 2018
